HS junior skilled big man from Serbia.

From the videos he seems like a legit prospect, but now he joined the national U18 Serbian team in the european champinship, and barley gets any time on the court. Any one knows why??? 7ft American HS prospect isn't good enough to play on the Serbian team?

Meh, looks nothing out of the ordinary. The level of competition on that Serbian teams is miles better than the one in the video.

The serbian team is good, and got two other talented bigs, but still - a HS player that considered to be an NBA prospects isn't good enough to play against europeans his age?

He had a nice dunk in one of the group stage games, but yeah I'm not sure why he's not playing. But Serbia got to the finals anyway, the other kids probably have been playing together since u15. From the high school videos I saw of him, he looks very, very skilled. I really like his game, and can see why he is a top college recruit for 2019. But the competition is really bad, I mean he is a man among boys with those high school kids; but obviously the talent is still there. He's not just dunking over kids, he looks like he is light on his feet and has soft hands with a nice shooting touch
